He has watched the Friends box set a number of times (but, then again, who hasn’t….?). Find additional info at Birdi Law. We strive to understand the specific needs of our clients and, using our knowledge and expertise, focus on delivering real-life and practical solutions.
We are experts in a range of mergers and acquisitions transactions, including share sales and purchases, asset sales and purchases, demergers, fundraising and management buy-outs and buy-ins. We generally deal with transaction values of between £100,000 – £10 million. Whether you have made the decision to retire and sell your business after many decades or are a start-up or an established business looking to make your first or a series of acquisitions, we offer specialist advice and representation which is tailored to your particular objectives.
Well-advised clients will benefit from lawyers who can structure their transactions in a legally compliant and effective way. We frequently find defects in the way in which share buyback transactions are structured e.g.: Deferred payments: it is generally unlawful to fund a share buyback in deferred or instalment payments (including leaving the balance outstanding on loan account). Distributable profits but no cash (or vice versa): share buybacks are commonly funded out of a company’s distributable profits, but profit does not automatically mean that enough cash is available to fund the payment for the shares. Similarly, having cash in the bank does not automatically mean that enough profits are available to complete the share buyback transaction. Discover additional details on birdilaw.com.
A key advantage of speaking to a specialist firm of solicitors, such as Birdi & Co Solicitors, is that we understand how fundraising transactions are supposed to be structured and we can offer guidance as to your options and the most effective way to structure your offering. In particular, we are aware of the legal issues that will be considered by your investors which enables us to address any gaps or concerns well in advance of presenting to your investors. The expertise we can bring to your company is invaluable.
Litigation – as well as being expensive – can last for a long time; often many months and sometimes over a year or longer than that. The process is likely to require a significant input of your time and may have a dramatic impact on your daily life. If your case involves legal issues which are not clear-cut, we will carefully consider the legal merits of your case but there is no guarantee that a judge will arrive at the same or similar conclusion. This is an inherent characteristic of complex legal disputes.
